Hi

This really is a divsive issue and is one that has valid arguments on both sides. On one side there is the argument that it is in the public interest to broadcast these message so that the public know the threat they face. And on the other side there is the argument that it gives the terrorists attention, a political broadcast and an opportunity to spread their message of hate and lies.

My Personal Opinion: Whether these videos are shown should remain at the discretion of the channel in question, but the channels shoudl give serious consideration as to the content and audience of the film. Most of the video's should not be shown as it in effect gives the terrorist a political broadcast to attract new extremists and sympathisers?

Yes and no. The videos should be made available to see on a website but I don't think they should be shown on T.V. It is disgusting how the media saturates the viewers with such crap.

You don't have to tell us twice. We'll show anything that advances our political agenda (aka Gun Control/VA Tech shooter) at the drop of a hat, but lord knows we won't broadcast anything that might still reinforce the cause of the opposition party (aka 9/11 attacks). It's just too soon, the nation isn't ready.
